Updated 09 May 2003, 10.02
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix
Four people - including two 16-year-olds - have been charged by police investigating two Order Of The Phoenix books believed to have been found in a field.

It comes after it was claimed copies of the top secret fifth Potter book were found in a Suffolk field on Tuesday.

The field is near to the firm which is printing copies of the book in time for its release on June 21.

A worker at the firm, Donald Parfitt, 44, from Worlingham near Beccles, has been charged with stealing chapters of the book.
